MF 010 : How Angelo Spenillo Became a Rockstar Lawyer by Being Like Water

Updated: Jun 16, 2022

Moving Forward is also available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher Radio, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Amazon Music.

Angelo embodies the be “like water” philosophy as his extraordinary career has spanned a diverse range from Justice Department tax appellate attorney to civil litigator to guitar salesman to account manager to product developer to social media & marketing specialist, all of which has culminated into his current position as general counsel at The Nerdery, a leading custom software design company. Outside the office, Angelo is the lead guitarist for the band Full Circle.  Being open to new challenges, taking big risks, but most importantly having the courage to take two steps back to move three forward has propelled Angelo into a career and life that he is passionate about.
